Reviews

Praise for The Surprising Power of a Good Dumpling:

This is a book with a huge heartbeat and so much love infused in every page. The stoic resilience of the Chiu family is inspiring. -- Alice Pung, award-winning author of Lucy and Linh

A heartwarming tale of family, food, and first love that captures the pain and confusion of grappling with a parent's mental illness. Wai Chim will make you cry both happy and sad tears. -- Justine Larbalestier, author of My Sister Rosa

I adored this heartfelt story. Anna truly won my heart: at sixteen she's caught at the crossroads of responsibility and restriction, laboring under heavy expectations that come from others and herself. Wai Chim has employed a deeply immersive storytelling style to explore the unspoken truths within families, trust, cross-cultural relationships, first love, and forgiveness with sophistication and unfailing empathy. -- Leanne Hall, author of Iris and the Tiger
